The 14 colleges and universities in covenant with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) now have a revised covenant with the Church, which was approved by the General Board at its 2011 meeting held Feb. 26-March 1 in Indianapolis.
Guy Waldrop, executive director for the Council of College and University Presidents of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) outlined the process that led to the revisions in a report to the board. The document is a revision of the 1977 covenant adopted by the colleges and universities and the Church. A task force was appointed in 2008 to review and revise the 30-year agreement.
